Ashleigh and Pudsey were the winners of last night's (12.05.12) 'Britain's Got Talent' final.
The dancing dog act won over the viewers and judges with their performance to the 'Mission: Impossible' themetune, which saw the cute canine jump and dance while following his owner around the stage.
The duo won £500,000 and will now perform in front of Queen Elizabeth at this year's Royal Variety Performance and Ashleigh, 17, admits winning was a dream come true.
After presenters Ant and Dec announced her name, she tearfully said: ''A massive thank you to everyone that voted for us. I'm just proud of Pudsey. Thank you so much.''
Judge Simon Cowell - who is a huge dog lover - was also pleased with the result and said he had enjoyed working on the show this year alongside fellow judges Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.
He said: ''My life's work is now complete. I want to say a huge thank you to these three [the judges]. This has been one of my favourite years, [Ant & Dec] have always been amazing.''
Speaking on 'Britain's Got More Talent' afterwards, Simon added: ''I love dogs, I love animals and I really like Ashleigh. They deserve it. That dog will become the most famous dog in the world.''
Ashleigh and Pudsey - who are now set to become stars in America - had beaten hot favourites Jonathan & Charlotte into second place while Welsh male choir Only Boys Aloud came third.
Loveable Rogues, Sam Kelly, Ryan O'Shaughnessy, Molly Rainford, Aquabatique, Kai & Natalia, The Mend and Nu Sxool were the other acts who took part in the final.
